اصلی ترین دلیلی که باعث شد این کتاب را بخرم عنوان جذاب آن بود. «عاشقانه های مصر باستان» به این معنی که از زمان مصریان باستان هم انسان برای انسان عاشقانه می سروده است. و این یعنی این مسئله منحصر به دوران مدرن نیست. آن طور که مترجم کتاب در ابتدا توضیح می دهد شعر عاشقانه در جوامع پیش از آمدن ادیان ابراهیمی (به ویژه کلیمیت و مسیحیت) رواج داشته است و پس از آن هم «شعر عاشقانه به مفهوم امروزی آن... در سرزمین هایی مانند هند، ژاپن و چین که از حوزه ی نفوذ اخلاق کلیمی مسیحی به دور مانده بودند همچنان رواج و ...more

My favorite book of poems ever. Hands down. Because did you know that the Song of Solomon, a book in the New Testament of the Bible, is really just ancient Egyption erotic poetry? It is not a lvoe song between The Chrch and The People. Erotica in the bIble. Na na na na na.

Yeah he was a Nazi, but somehow that managed to stay out of this collection. It didn't hurt that Pound fell ill while writing it and had to collaborate with Neil Stock. Still worth the reading.
